Buying a used Mitsubishi Triton
There’s a number of Mitsubishi Triton models to choose from, all with different features, body styles, and drivetrains to suit your needs. Let’s breakdown all the features:
Single or dual cab
Single cab utes are available on the Triton GLX models, with diesel or petrol engines to choose from. You’ll get a more work-focussed ute that’s made for loading and hauling cargo or equipment in its cab tray. Being a work vehicle, single-cab utes are also highly customisable for installing equipment or extra storage.
For something that can do a bit of everything, dual cab utes are great for work and play, commuting, or even as a family car. Dual cab styles are available on all Mitsubishi Triton models, offering plenty of legroom for your crew, smart tech, and high levels of practicality.
Mitsubishi also offers a third option called a club cab, also known as a king cab or super cab. The club cab is something between single and dual cab, with one row of standard driver and passenger seats, and a narrower second row. The doors on each side open outwards together like a cupboard, perfectly handy for loading anything you need in and out. Choose the Triton GLX, GLX ADAS, or GLX+ 4x4 models for the club cab models.
Cab chassis or pickup
For full customisation capabilities or you just need a simple cab tray to carry cargo, choose a cab chassis Triton model. When you look for a used Mitsubishi Triton, you’ll also find utes with all kinds of extra installations like toolbox canopies, steel trays with drawers, and more.
Pickup utes however, are more suitable for towing or off-roading. They provide more torque for towing and many models are designed with 4WD off-roading in mind. 4WD tech like rear differential lock and easy select 4WD drive modes are featured on the 4WD GSR and GLS pickup models.
2WD Mitsubishi Triton models have a braked towing capacity from 1800-3000 kg, and 3000-3100 kg on 4WD models. If you plan to regularly tow your boat, cargo trailer, or campervan, be sure to check the capacities and weights of what you’re towing and make sure to keep everything secure and balanced. Trailer stability assist is standard across the Triton range, and tow packs are commonly installed on many used Mitsubishi Triton utes on the market.
Mitsubishi makes some of the most fuel efficient utes across the segment. Diesel 2WD models can go as low as 7.8L/100km, and fuel consumptions on 4WD cab chassis and pickups range from 7.9-8.6L/100km.
2WD models like the GLX single cab chassis and GLX ADAS dual cab pickup are best suited for commuting on gravel roads to and from job sites. The 2.4L turbo diesel engine delivers a responsive drive, and the lighter weight means less fuel used and lower running costs.
4WD models provide more control, manoeuvrability, and power when you’re driving off-road through rough terrains or steep inclines. It’s available across the Triton range, with the GLS and GSR featuring 4WD essentials like rear differential lock, hill descent control, and off-road mode technology. The Mitsubishi Triton is also one of the few utes that offer 4WD on its single cab range as well.
How safe are used Mitsubishi Triton utes?
All Mitsubishi Triton utes from 2015 and onwards have received maximum 5-star ANCAP ratings, which means they can provide a high level of safety performance to protect drivers and passengers. MiTEC safety tech is standard across the range, including active stability control, active traction control, trailer stability assist, and hill start assist. On range-toppers like the GLS or GSR double cab pickups, additions include hill descent control, blind spot warning, lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert, and multi around monitor.
